Trading Spaces rebuilding its format
Trading Spaces will undergo a makover this fall. Second-quarter ratings for TLC's most popular show have dropped 50 percent from the same period last year. TLC says that the show will "evolve" when season five launches in October. TLC is offering no details, for competitive reasons, but says the show will be "less predictable and more spontaneous" but the basic structure and on-air talent will stay the same. The show will incorporate more behind-the-scenes looks into the design process.
